Technical problems are solved for the most part by using computers. The mere availability of more and more powerful computers and the ability to operate them is, however, not enough to master the major scientific-technological challenges of the future. The main difficulty lies in the mathematical presentation – in the modeling – of the technical question to make the challenges accessible to computer processing. Conveying the necessary abilities for this, which of course includes using computing systems in close connection with fascinating applications, is the key aspect of this program.
The Master’s program in Computational Engineering Science is an academic, research-based program that is geared to basic research and methods.
The program allows graduates to pursue successful careers that span their entire working life because the program is not limited to conveying current contents but conveys theoretically substantiated basic concepts and methods that transcend current trends.
The program equips students with the basic principles, concepts and methods of the field. Upon completion of their degree, students should be in a position to handle tasks in various application fields given different technical, economic and social parameters; they can apply the acquired concepts and methods to future developments.
The teaching and learning forms and generic modules specifically prepare students for on the job requirements. The CES Master’s program pursues the following educational objectives:
The program goals mentioned above will be honed to a higher degree in the Master’s program than in the Bachelor’s program. Specifically with regard to problem solving and leadership skills there is a considerable difference. This means that caliber of the tasks will be different for both degrees once in a job upon completion of the program.
The Master’s program in Computational Engineering Science includes, in addition to CES seminar, a CES lecture series and a Master’s thesis module amounting to 55 credits, which the students choose in consultation with a supervising professor and combine to make an individual program, which must be approved by the course of study advisor and examination board at the beginning of studies. In doing so, one of the following fields has to be selected as the concentration:
Regardless of the choice of concentration the areas mathematics, informatics and engineering sciences have to be covered. An outline of the degree content is given in the curriculum.
The M.Sc. in Computational Engineering Science is sought after in many branches. Specially trained engineers are required to run computer-assisted procedures in the chemical, automobile and aerospace industries. Moreover, the program qualifies graduates to work not only in engineering science fields, but also in the software industry.
